Chalk Talk: How to Use Music Mnemonics for Memorization
There are many ways to help yourself memorize information and one of them is called Music Mnemonics. This is a process which uses music to remind yourself of information. Particularly with young children this is effective for learning material like the days of the week or months of the year. Whether you need to remember a definition or a list, think of a song that you find catchy. Then begin to put what you need to memorize into the tune. You may want to find a song that somehow reminds you of the topic you are memorizing. Either way, though, let the music guide you. The same way a song can’t get out of your head, let the tune and your new lyrics sink in and repeat over and over until you have your information memorized. When you need to remember the information, just start humming the tune under your breath.
